Daily Yinz – Urns – King of the Ashes

Urns creates metal that must be listened to with fingers waggling and mouth going “oOoOoOo.”

The songs on Urns’ latest release, Empyre, use sludgy, roiling guitars, hammering drums, spooky synths, and incantatory moans to tell tales of apocalyptic worlds and bizarre creatures. “King of the Ashes” leans especially heavily into the warlocky drama, opening with carnival-from-hell keyboards before swirling together a brew of cascading riffs and vocals that seem to float above the surrounding din. The song pays tribute to the doomy stoner gods while carving out its own unique sound in the process.
